    2. Hour of Divine Mercy / Hour of Great Mercy
      3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

      The Divine Mercy is a Roman Catholic devotion to the merciful love of God and the desire to let that love and mercy flow through one’s own heart towards those in need of it.

      The devotion is due to Saint Mary Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938), who is known as the Apostle of Mercy.

      The three main themes of the devotion are:

      1. to ask for and obtain the mercy of God,
      2. to trust in Christ’s abundant mercy,
      3. and finally to show mercy to others and act as a conduit for God’s mercy towards them.

      The devotion includes specific prayers such as the Chaplet of Divine Mercy [audio].

      The primary focus of the Divine Mercy devotion is the merciful love of God and the desire to let that love and mercy flow through one’s own heart towards those in need of it.  As he dedicated the Shrine of Divine Mercy, Pope John Paul II referred to this when he said:

      Apart from the mercy of God there is no other source of hope for mankind“.

      As in the prayers that form the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, there are three main themes to the Divine Mercy devotion – listed see above.

      The first and second elements relate to the signature “Jesus I trust in You” on the Divine Mercy image and Faustina stated that on April 28, 1935, the day the first Divine Mercy Sunday was celebrated, Jesus told her:

      Every soul believing and trusting in My Mercy will obtain it.

      In her diary Faustina wrote that Jesus specified three o’clock each afternoon (3PM) as the hour at which mercy was best received, and asked her to pray the Chaplet of Mercy:

      As often as you hear the clock strike the third hour immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it, invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners, for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul.

      Three o’clock in the afternoon corresponds to the hour at which Jesus died on the cross. This hour is called the “Hour of Divine Mercy” or the “Hour of great mercy“.

      The chaplet contains the initial prayers as in a Rosary, then proceeds on the beads, adding specific offerings to the Father on the larger beads. On the smaller beads, it has specific other petitions for mercy. It then concludes by repeating a specific prayer for mercy [audio].

      • The Sign of the Cross on the Crucifix;
      • On large bead
        • Opening prayer:
          You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
        • Repeated three times:
          O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!
      • On three smaller beads, one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and The Apostles’ Creed
      • For each of the five decades:
        • On large bead:
          Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
        • Repeated on each of the ten small Beads (10x):
          For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
      • Concluding prayers:  Doxology, repeated three times (3x):
        Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
      • Closing Prayer:
        Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
      • Conclude with the Sign of the Cross.

      4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

      The Good Catholic Life is a Catholic radio show created and broadcasted in Boston and hosted by folks who grew up in and know the Boston area.

      It is all about living a good Catholic life in our hometown – i.e. Mattapan, Hyde Park, Roslindale, Dorchester, Milton, Randolph, Avon, Brockton, etc … The regular host is Scot Landry and he is joined each day by a regular rotating series of co-hosts as well as guests to discuss a variety of topics of interest to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Parish Business manager Richard Durham and parishioner Gaspard Lafalaise were invited to join as co-hosts to talk about St. Matthew’s Dorchester and St. Angela’s Mattapan Parish Family and the Haitian Boston Catholic Community – Program #0302 for Friday, May 18, 2012: Pastoral Center Service Week.

      Program #0302 for Friday, May 18, 2012: Pastoral Center Service Week

      http://www.thegoodcatholiclife.com/ Program #0302 for Friday, May 18, 2012: Pastoral Center Service Week

      In 2010, Cardinal Seán O’Malley asked Scot, who is also the Secretary for Catholic Media in the Archdiocese of Boston, to create a radio show in cooperation with WQOM 1060AM and the Station of the Cross network that would

      • Share and discuss the initiatives and efforts of Cardinal Seán to renew the Church;
      • Provide formation to understand Church teaching to live a happy, holy, and good Catholic life and to help further the Church’s mission in many ways, including evangelization and promoting the family, the dignity of life, the needs of immigrants and the poor, and respect for the Magisterium; and
      • Profile the ministries, apostolates, and Catholic leaders within the Archdiocese and our region who are effectively bring the Gospel message to the city streets and our neighborhoods.

      The Good Catholic Life also looks at the news of the day locally, nationally, and globally to explore what’s happening in the world around us from a distinctly Catholic perspective.

      Above all, The Good Catholic Life is honest, comprehensive, informative, informational, and fun, and shows that the good life is the Catholic life and the Catholic life should always be The Good Catholic Life.

This year 2012, St. Angela’s Mattapan and St. Matthew’s Dorchester parish family becomes two of many parishes of the Archdiocese of Boston to join the steady growing Youth Movement of Life Teen which is in its 25th year.

      Boston Parish Life Teen Program

      Boston Parish Life Teen Program

      St. Angela’s/St. Matthew’s parish family sponsors these two ministry programs:

      • Life Teen – 9th to 12th graders, the High School youth ministry program, and
      • EDGE – 6th to 8th graders, the Middle School youth ministry program.

      The mission of St. Angela’s/St. Matthew’s parish family Life Teen program is:

      To create a dynamic Catholic environment that brings parish teenagers closer to Jesus Christ. This youth ministry program dedicates itself to building relationships through liturgy, prayer, service, and fellowship in Christ.

      The most important part of Life Teen and Edge program is the Youth Mass in a welcoming atmosphere, with reverent and relevant music, and with an engaging homily that speaks to the issues in teens’ lives today. Life Teen Youth Mass remains sacred and timeless. Our theme this year is “Radiant Joy”.

      These two youth ministry programs work in coordination with the parish Religious Education programs and with the other existing parish youth Ministry programs:

      • Les Etoiles De Marie of St. Matthew’s Dorchester
      • MEJ/Mouvement Eucharistique Des Jeunes of St. Matthew’s
      • Echo Des Jeunes of St. Angela’s Mattapan
      • Divine Promise of St. Angela’s
      • TYP/ The Young Professionals of St. Angela’s and,
      • The World Youth Day planning committee of both St. Matthew’s & St. Angela’s.

      Both parishes’ young adults and parents are invited and encouraged to support and to help plan the parish Life Teen Masses, events and activities that will further their growth in the Catholic faith and fellowship. Life Teen at St. Angela’s/St. Matthew’s run regularly every first Thursday of the month at St. Angela’s Mattapan and every 3rd Thursday of the month at St. Matthew’s Dorchester. Other meetings, Youth Masses, activities and events will take place as announced.

      The Good Catholic Life is a Catholic radio show created and broadcasted in Boston and hosted by folks who grew up in and know the Boston area.

      It is all about living a good Catholic life in our hometown – i.e. Mattapan, Hyde Park, Roslindale, Dorchester, Milton, Randolph, Avon, Brockton, etc … The regular host is Scot Landry and he is joined each day by a regular rotating series of co-hosts as well as guests to discuss a variety of topics of interest to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Parish Business manager Richard Durham and parishioner Gaspard Lafalaise were invited to join as co-hosts to talk about St. Matthew’s Dorchester and St. Angela’s Mattapan Parish Family and the Haitian Boston Catholic Community – Program #0302 for Friday, May 18, 2012: Pastoral Center Service Week.

      In 2010, Cardinal Seán O’Malley asked Scot, who is also the Secretary for Catholic Media in the Archdiocese of Boston, to create a radio show in cooperation with WQOM 1060AM and the Station of the Cross network that would

      • Share and discuss the initiatives and efforts of Cardinal Seán to renew the Church;
      • Provide formation to understand Church teaching to live a happy, holy, and good Catholic life and to help further the Church’s mission in many ways, including evangelization and promoting the family, the dignity of life, the needs of immigrants and the poor, and respect for the Magisterium; and
      • Profile the ministries, apostolates, and Catholic leaders within the Archdiocese and our region who are effectively bring the Gospel message to the city streets and our neighborhoods.

      The Good Catholic Life also looks at the news of the day locally, nationally, and globally to explore what’s happening in the world around us from a distinctly Catholic perspective.

      Above all, The Good Catholic Life is honest, comprehensive, informative, informational, and fun, and shows that the good life is the Catholic life and the Catholic life should always be The Good Catholic Life.

    4. Hour of Divine Mercy / Hour of Great Mercy
      3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

      The Divine Mercy is a Roman Catholic devotion to the merciful love of God and the desire to let that love and mercy flow through one’s own heart towards those in need of it.

      The devotion is due to Saint Mary Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938), who is known as the Apostle of Mercy.

      The three main themes of the devotion are:

      1. to ask for and obtain the mercy of God,
      2. to trust in Christ’s abundant mercy,
      3. and finally to show mercy to others and act as a conduit for God’s mercy towards them.

      The devotion includes specific prayers such as the Chaplet of Divine Mercy [audio].

      The primary focus of the Divine Mercy devotion is the merciful love of God and the desire to let that love and mercy flow through one’s own heart towards those in need of it.  As he dedicated the Shrine of Divine Mercy, Pope John Paul II referred to this when he said:

      Apart from the mercy of God there is no other source of hope for mankind“.

      As in the prayers that form the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, there are three main themes to the Divine Mercy devotion – listed see above.

      The first and second elements relate to the signature “Jesus I trust in You” on the Divine Mercy image and Faustina stated that on April 28, 1935, the day the first Divine Mercy Sunday was celebrated, Jesus told her:

      Every soul believing and trusting in My Mercy will obtain it.

      In her diary Faustina wrote that Jesus specified three o’clock each afternoon (3PM) as the hour at which mercy was best received, and asked her to pray the Chaplet of Mercy:

      As often as you hear the clock strike the third hour immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it, invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners, for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul.

      Three o’clock in the afternoon corresponds to the hour at which Jesus died on the cross. This hour is called the “Hour of Divine Mercy” or the “Hour of great mercy“.

      The chaplet contains the initial prayers as in a Rosary, then proceeds on the beads, adding specific offerings to the Father on the larger beads. On the smaller beads, it has specific other petitions for mercy. It then concludes by repeating a specific prayer for mercy [audio].

      • The Sign of the Cross on the Crucifix;
      • On large bead
        • Opening prayer:
          You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
        • Repeated three times:
          O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!
      • On three smaller beads, one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and The Apostles’ Creed
      • For each of the five decades:
        • On large bead:
          Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
        • Repeated on each of the ten small Beads (10x):
          For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
      • Concluding prayers:  Doxology, repeated three times (3x):
        Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
      • Closing Prayer:
        Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
